A clean alternative to the popular "band-aid" mod. These stabilizer pads will dampen the sound of your stabilizers hitting your PCB. They will also help to even out stabilizer noise caused by PCB holes.
Each unit comes with 20 stabilizer pads. Available in two materials: silicone (clear) and Teflon fiber (black)
Remove one pad from the set.
Put the pad between two stabilizer holes.
Install your stabilizers onto the PCB as usual, ensuring the stabilizer housing covers the pad.
Screw in or clip in your stabilizer housing.
Compatible with both plate mount and PCB mount stabilizers, though we recommended them for PCB mount stabilizers since they make contact with the PCB.
Great for lubricating stabilizers. Not recommended for switches.
From the manufacturer:
XHT-BDZ is the highest viscosity grease in the XHT-BD Series. Krytox XHT-BD greases are designed for use where the temperatures are in the 288 °C (500 °F) range and higher, where there is a danger of melting the standard PTFE thickener. This grease uses a special non-melting high temperature thickener. The base oil is an extremely viscous oil that provides good viscosity and lower evaporation at high temperatures. Krytox XHT-BD greases are for use in low speed bearings or in pillow housings and will shear at high speeds, causing loss of oil in sealed bearings. The oil in the grease can begin to slowly evaporate at temperatures above 330 °C (626 °F), and this will occur at an increasing rate as temperatures increase. Re-lubrication could be required at these temperatures to achieve optimum life.
